"Max Trill"


"Max Trill" is a faster transient version of the Ulm stool by Max Bill, because it consists exclusively of Birdseed. So when its standing in the garden, or for that matter in any public space, it will be gradually nibbled away. Rain and other environmental occurrences quicken its dissolution. The aim was to create a primarily functional object, which bit by bit dissolves and thereby divests the user of the classic product cycle of buying and discarding.
